    Does anyone have any WW2 War Diaries of the "Calgary Highlanders ? " My Canadian Cousin Cpl George Stuart (K67754).
    I do have a little history on George:

    K67754 George Stuart
    Enlisted with the Irish Fusiliers (Vancouver Regt).
    Transferred to The Calgary Highlanders (date not known).
    Acting Corporal, wounded 8 August 1944 near Tilly-la-Campagne, France.
    Cpl George Stuart (K67754) was wounded on the 8th of August, 1944. This would have occurred during Operation Totalize which as you note was the fighting South of Caen - in particular for The Calgary Highlanders, Bretteville-sur-Laize.


    Can any kind person help me out Please?

    I would be most grateful for any help! or anyone who may know of "George Stuart ? "

    Thank You Kindly.:)

    Where are you located? The War Diaries are available in Ottawa and I would guess Calgary as well.
